Entry requirements

Before you apply to study an honours degree, you need to have successfully completed a bachelor degree in a relevant subject at Murdoch or another university.


Each school has its own qualifying criteria, but you’ll usually need to have at least a Distinction (or equivalent) average in your final year of studies. You will also need to ask an academic staff member with relevant expertise to supervise your research.

Other prerequisites may apply. To learn about entry to specific honours courses please contact the Academic Chair of the school you are applying to. Your honours applications will be subject to approval of the School Dean.
